Toyota Dealer employee under fire after wife wins classic Supra in raffle

oyota-Dealer-employee-under-fire-after-wife-wins-classic-Supra-in-raffleThey say Charity begins at home. Try telling that to the Texas based Toyota Dealership that was holding a raffle for a local charity. The car showroom has come in for a whirlwind of criticism online after the wife of the General Sales Manager, ended up hitting the jackpot.

The Toyota dealership had collaborated with non-profit charity – The Genesis Centre (a charity that offers shelter and support to those battling addiction or domestic violence). However, things looked a little suspicious after Rebecca Rawls – wife of boss Danny Rawls – ended up winning the star prize: a 1994 Toyota Supra, which had been donated as a prize by a local resident who was battling cancer.

In a statement, released by the dealership after the winning Ticket had been drawn, it was announced that Rawls had joined a syndicate with four other people. Each contributed $300 (£235) for tickets, which bought them six tickets for every $100 spent.

The exact amount of tickets sold has not been disclosed, but the dealership reported that over $50,000 (£39,000) was raised for The Genesis Center, making the lowest possible amount of tickets that could have been sold around 3,000. This works out that Rawl’s syndicate – which purchased 90 tickets – would have had a 3% chance of winning. Sounds like remarkably good luck doesn’t it?

The dealership has taken steps to address the apparent massive co-incidence, including offering to resell the vehicle and donate the proceeds to the charity. This hasn’t stopped a deluge of one-star reviews on their social media and review pages however.

The full statement released can be read here:
